I’ll never forget the first time I went to Molineux
IT was nice to see drawings by my friend Maurice Chillington in the Bugle dated October 24, recalling memories of the Golden Era of Wolves.
I first went to watch Wolves in 1948. My dad and I parked our bikes in the entry in North Street (now part of the University buildings) near St Peter’s Church.
We stood on the South Bank and watched Wolves play Manchester United with Jack Rowley, Johnny Carey and Allenbey Chilton in their line-up. I remarked to my dad, ‘Billy Crook is better than Billy Wright!’
Billy Crook had the game of his life that day. A great memory. I was privileged to watch Wolves with many thousands of others during that era, 1949-1960. Wonderful times. Reg Summerfield, Netherleigh, Becket Street, Bilson
